This was the Dead of the Day on gratefuldeadoftheday.com, which is a cool site that has turned me on to a bunch of shows.
Subject: this was a great show on many levels

The doors opened at just the right time: it was getting cold and March-sh. So we were happy to be indoors with beer and friends and a Dead show... all was right with the world.
The crowd cheer at the start of this Shakedown always gives me the chills. Yes, the boys were great. The Utica Memorial sounded great — it's like a big tin drum; the band nailed the acoustics.
As others have said, the show's energy is outstanding. The High Time/Cassidy/Althea/Music Never Stopped stretch is as good as it gets for the boys in the 80s. A quick plug for the Wharf Rat: it was the jewel of the second set.
Don't Ease Me In says how the show ended...the band was on to Hartford and I said goodbye to my touring buddies as headed back to school at Syracuse. Winter had returned outside. The police smoldered all day at the idea of ten-thousand law-breakers and were downright vengeful by the time the show ended. So we beat it on down the line.
Subject: Great Show!
Subject: must agree
Subject: Upstate of Mind
Subject: This is a classic example of "bringing the party where they need it the most!!!

No one has mentioned just how weird of a day it actually was .... unseasonally warm for march in upstate NY , low 60's , we were tossing the friz in a parking lot in Rome that day , and came out of the show in short sleeves in a blizzard , talk about cold rain and snow . There's a cop-shop across the street from the Aud , and after the show there was a serious show of force from the local constablatory .This was due to the fact that some cold deadhead on the outside wanted to be inside, and tossed a trash can thru a glass wall/window to get inside. As hot as they were that night I can't blame him !
We came out of the show to be greeted by Utica's finest dressed in full riot gear , and a full blown blizzard ! Yes, I was hallucinating , but that was real , as was this incredible show !
